  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Omg, Qtc C&p

Question

My psych c&p and my physical c&p today were the 1st times that I had dealt with QTC and it has been a day and night experience.

My Psych c&p I posted, and cannot say nice enough things about the dr.

The physical c&p, well...... The doc went strickly by a checklist, did not want to hear anything else (even pain in the claimed area unless it was on the checklist) refused to do a pevic for adhesions and wanted me to sign a waiver ( I signed, but for a pap smear), when I went for x-rays they did a chest x-ray and my claim is for my coccyx being an open fracture after 28 yrs held together by scar tissue...and I'm sure I'll think of more.

It took longer to take x-rays that do the physical exam.

Holy smokers Batman !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :angry:

IRIS the VARO and complain immediately. Look up the exam worksheet and quote to the RO what he didn't do correctly. Tell them that he would not listen to your complaints of pain, as pain plays a great deal with most ratings, as well as extra-schedular ratings. Also be sure and tell them that the wrong area of the body was x-rayed for the condition claimed. Don't let them pull this crap with you. Get in the driver's seat as fast as you can and get this run away bus pointed in the right direction.

Good advice. Once I called 1800 to check on claim status, mentioned cp exam fiasco, doc didnt examine correctly and stated things on C&P I didnt say; er lies. So the nice telephone clerk told me I could request another exam, So I did. Didnt get reexamined. *Claim letter said 'servicemember reported examining doctor insufficient....but examiners office recognizes it as factual'... or something to that effect.

I learned new exams aren't always allowed and a vets 'spoken' words can be used in the claim process, even if by telephone. (*iu claim denied big increase in other sc items).

Using Rentals 'vehicle' to get behind the wheel, my thoughts are stick to the exam worksheet and call it out by the specifics,don't let this get personal against the doc. Get the C&p copy asap, if it reads correct or incorrect, it will stand unless challenged.

Best to ya,

Cg

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
